Crawl Space Problem Signs in Mobile
Since trips to your crawl space could be dangerous, it’s best to avoid them altogether by calling the experts at AFS. Although mold and standing water are easiest to observe inside the crawl space, plenty of crawl space problem signs can be observed in the living areas of your home. Musty odors, high humidity, weak or sagging floor, condensation, or high energy bills are all symptoms that can be detected without ever having to venture into the space below your floors.
Water in your crawl space causes condensation, mold and wood rot. It’s a serious problem for your structural integrity and for your family’s health.
Dry rot can quickly spread throughout your crawl space and severely damage your beams and joists. If not addressed on time, this problem can cause structural collapse.
A musty smell in your home, even at a low level, can point to many different problems within your property as a whole. Learning to read the problem signs is key.
What are the Causes of Crawl Space Damage in Mobile?
Unfortunately, the weather and soil in Mobile are the worst combination for crawl space problems. Although construction error may be the problem, in our more than 20 years of experience, we have found environmental issues far exceed construction problems. The stack effect draws Mobile’s hot, humid air into the crawl space through the open vents. There it travels throughout the home, bringing mold spores, pest droppings, and musty odors. This air eventually escapes through the roof. Even in the best-insulated homes, up to 50 percent of the air you breathe comes from your crawl space. The large amount of rain in Mobile, more than 65 inches annually, is also to blame. Rainwater often enters the crawl space through the vents, doors, or the crawl floor, resulting in standing water. Stagnant water can cause mold to grow within 24 to 48 hours, so it’s best to address the problem quickly.
Crawl Space Repair & Encapsulation Solutions in Mobile
The best way to repair your Mobile crawl space is to seal it from the outside elements and include the space in your living area. By locking out humid air, moisture, and pests, you are able to use your crawl space for storage. This process, commonly referred to as encapsulation, may involve a waterproofing system– including a sump pump, vapor barrier, and energy-efficient dehumidifier. At AFS, your encapsulation system is customized to the needs of your home and specific problems. An expert team member will suggest a repair option that works for your home.
High humidity levels in your crawl space can lead to rot, mold growth, and other problems. With a dehumidifier, you can keep these levels under control and avoid expensive repairs.
Mold and pest infestation, water damage and comfort issues are a thing of the past with the right crawl space insulation.
